Fix documentation for pam_wheel
By default, pam_wheel checks for applicant membership in the wheel group for *all* access requests, regardless of whether the target user is root or non-root. Only if root_only is provided does it limit the membership check to cases when the target user is root. Update the documentation to reflect this.

The pam_wheel PAM module is used to enforce the so-called
- <emphasis>wheel</emphasis> group. By default it permits root
- access to the system if the applicant user is a member of the
+ <emphasis>wheel</emphasis> group. By default it permits
+ access to the target user if the applicant user is a member of the
<emphasis>wheel</emphasis> group. If no group with this name exist,
the module is using the group with the group-ID
<emphasis remap='B'>0</emphasis>.
